The first Festival dedicted to Autumn

The Il Ciocco Estate and Park invites you to “La Piazza del Ciocco – Autumn Festival” on September 21st and 22nd 

 

The Festival, inspired by the autumn season with its colors, scents and unmistakable flavors, is  open from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the piazza on the Estate.  It aims to contribute in raising awareness and enhancing
the territory’s specialties and local products such as art and handmade crafts, food, wine and textiles.

 

Many are the stands that you will find that will offer a wide variety of choices such as articles made of  terracotta, stone jewelry, furnishings
and decorative items, essential oils and perfumes, boiled wool clothing
from Casentino, velvet, felt and wool hats.

And to delight our guest’s palate there will be stands with our traditional “prosciutto bazzone”, cinta senese salami, ricottas, local sheep and goat cheeses, cornmeal, spelt and chestnuts, honey and jams and  you may
also enjoy local wine, chili pepper and olive oil tastings.

During the two day Festival there will be a number of outdoor activities planned as well as nature walks throughout the Estate, recreational
activities for children, show cooking and live performances.

 

So why not spend an out of the ordinary and original weekend in a truly enchanting corner of Tuscany, far from the usual tourist crowds, and celebrate with us in good cheer the coming of autumn.

Just a note to inform you that the hotels and restaurants on the estate,
as well as in the Serchio Valley,
thought of doing something special for
the occasion.  Themed  lunches and dinners will be prepared to give you the opportunity of tasting our territory’s autumn delicacies and local cuisine.
And why not spend the night on the estate with a special package for 1 or 2 nights reserved especially for you (info@ciocco.it). 

 

Make it a vacation!
